. it is at supersonic for reentry. the reason it does is that mike adams got killed while i was working at edwards during reentry. he did not have the hitch accurate within about that much -- pitch accurate within about that much range and he did not have the yaw accurate within about that much rain, and that haunted me. i thought that was the reason we would not have commercial space flight. the pilot for spaceshipone reentry -- by the way, there is not autopilot. the only thing controlling those controls are the rudder pedals on a mock 0.3 airplane. you have the electric fin on the tail. just like a piper cub. [laughter] weird, huh? you could be at apogee in spaceshipone, eat your lunch, handoff, and do as a free entry -- safe reentry. you're not putting yourself at risk like mike adams put himself at risk. this is just a picture isgoogle earth. out to the right is the white knight climbing 50% more altitude than an airliner. going up about 50,000 feet. from up there, about 70 miles, you're looking on the horizon. this is why we stopped flying space ships. i wanted to fly one every five months t

west grabbed the mike from her... and the time she sang a live duet with stevie nicks at the grammys off-key. one nasty review said she had killed her career overnight, and was "too young and dumb to understand the mistake she'd made." >> taylor swift: the things that were said about me by this dude floored me and, like, leveled me. and i... i don't have thick skin. i hate reading criticisms. you never really, like, get past things hurting you. >> stahl: but then, taylor did her thing and turned the wound into a song... ♪ ♪ >> stahl: the hit single "mean." and in the music video, taylor broadened it beyond herself to a boy in a locker room reading a fashion magazine, a girl who shows up wearing something different. the song has taken on a life of its own-- a sort of anti- bullying, anti-meanness anthem. ♪ ♪ ♪ there's a deep, deep connection here. as one of her fans told us, "taylor lets us know it's okay to be ourselves." ♪ say yes ♪ and all you're evero be is mean ♪ scott borchetta says she's a cultural leader and she knows it. >> taylor swift: well, i definitely t
. >> reporter: kaczowka and 43-year-old lieutenant mike chiapperini were both firefighters. they were shot christmas eve while responding to a fire. the two men were good friends. >> tomasz wasquiet. he did his job pretty much unnoticed. didn't look for any thanks or anything like that. he just did what needed to be done. chip was -- his personality was such as he could make you laugh in the worst of situations or he'd find something to laugh about. and he did it naturally. >> reporter: amidst their pain and grief, the firefighters returned to work the next day on christmas. >> we want them to return to a point of normalcy as quickly as possible. obviously it's not going to be quick. and the first few runs that they go out on, quite frankly, they may be looking over their shoulder. but at some point in time, this organization has to get back to what we do. >> reporter: and after 36 hours of filling in for west webster, area fire departments left and west webster pulled in, knowing if needed, they had the support of the community and their brother firefighters. >> that was angela hong from
of the interactions with the sights and mike climate science but there could be other examples. >> i actually just wrote -- i would find it hard to believe that it's in the gm know because the biological and the chemical and the physical science are about as far removed from the political ideology as you can possibly imagine. mauney daily routine at the lab is to grow bacteria and then do very bizarre things to them and then get results from that. my political philosophy played no role in what i did on a daily basis. so, i would say that on biology, chemistry, physics, politics probably plays a very little role. on the social sciences, yes it's hard to imagine when a field like sociology is 40-1 that doesn't affect the quality of the research that comes out of the field. and economics, by the way -- which is considered the conservative social science -- democrats have them out numbered 3-1. it's hard to imagine that doesn't play a role in the social sciences. >> to defer a little bit, doesn't seem to be a problem and there's a high profit potential for the research products leading to high levels
communicators" on c-span. >> according to author mike loughner, the party is over. how the republicans went crazy. democrats became useless in the middle class got shafted. mr. lofgren how did the republicans go crazy? >> while they got crazy when they became kind of an up apocalyptic whole that lives in its own bubble. i think we have seen that in the last election. they simply could not believe the public polls, what they were saying that obama was probably going to win and most democratic senate candidates were going to win. they were shellshocked in their own words. and if they could not accept empirical reality they are going to be in big trouble in the succeedinsucceedin g elections. see the democrats became useless? >> well they become useless and they have become kind of the party of me to but less in that after three successive losses in presidential elections in the 80's, they kind of retooled and became more corporate friendly. many people think, and i happen to be one of them, for all that obama has excoriated as the kind of canyon usurper who is a muslim and
. [ stand by audio difficulty ] >> she is right across the room. got to get the mike to work. we'll go meantime to john harwood. the president, i think it is a package here, talking about the hopes of avoiding the fiscal cliff but what is on the agenda after the first of the year. john harwood takes a look at some of the predictions for the white house in 2013. >> president obama's re-election campaign was long on effective arguments but short on details of exactly what he will do after his second-term inaugural parade takes place on pennsylvania avenue. suddenly, three big priorities have come into focus. tax reform, immigration, and gun control. tax reform is driven by the fiscal cliff debate. it is the only way to maximize revenue while minimizing tax rate increases. but this white house has always been skeptical tax reform could become a reality given support for popular loopholes so count this obama goal unlikely to happen. comprehensive immigration reform took a back seat in president obama's first term. but after hispanic voters helped him win a second one, he can't avoid it now
